cystocele-day surgery a possibility?

Good Morning:
I am a 51 year old mother of 5 presenting with a category four cystocele. It is absolutely grossing me out.  My question is can my bladder be repaired in Day Surgery or would a surgical solution involve a hospital stay.  I have
a severely autistic 19 year old son and it would be upsetting to me and him to have me leave for 2 or more days.
Also would a pessary help me.  I would prefer not to have surgery.  
Anne.

Hi there,
I have heard of a pessary working just fine for this problem, however some women don't like them. I am a recovery room nurse, and many of the patients I see that have had the surgery for cystocele, go home the same day. I think alot of it depends on the type of surgery you are considering. I would talk with my doc about all the possible treatments
Good luck and let us know how you are making out
